" I look where it is good. I know about the bad, but I look at the good thing."
My friend Aiva sent me a link this morning. I am fascinated with it. I learned from it. I am listening to it real good. It contents meanings and wisdom gathered from a long life with certain great difficulties, that put my proportions in order - " it is not so terrible" - set them right, till I forget again and need another reminder to regulate them. When life acts out a bit on us and we are in danger of feeling sorrow of ourselves, of loosing our "good haze" and falling into haze of uncertainty and fear, it is always helpful to have someone to lead us back to the good things - because there are plenty of them. And even if life deals us really bad cards, this woman's experience and spiritual guidance may give us a helpful insight, a more optimistic outlook, and tools to survive.
"I learned to be thankful for everything
for not being hungry
for being in a good haze
of course of course
seeing the sun
seeing the smile of a good person
hearing a nice word of somebody
a nice word of somebody...
Everything is a present - everything - this I learned, to be thankful for everything."
Maybe this will cause you too to think matters over and after the cry arrive at a smile.
